For this unit my Student Teacher Kayla Thoits had the opportunity to teach Value through the inspiration of the artist Keith Haring. Keith Haring was a street artist in the late eighties and early nineties where he created glorified stick figures through pose and movement incorporating vibrant colors. Students learned how to mix paint to gain three values using one of their primary colors and then another three values through complementary colors.
Materials Used: Pencil, scissors, black crayon, glue, tempera/acrylic paint, ruler.
Vocabulary Learned: Keith Haring, Street Art, Movement, Value, Design Element, Color Wheel, Complementary colors, Primary colors, outlining,
For this unit students learned about the Design Element Texture through the inspiration of Moroccan Pottery and their rich culture. When creating textures instead of using materials such as bubble wrap or sandpaper students instead created the illusion of texture through design. This multi media project involved learning correct painting techniques and the freedom of color and design.
Materials Used: Pencil, sharpie, white crayon, construction crayon, watercolor paint.
Vocabulary Learned: Design Element, Texture, Illusion, Design, Symmetry, Moroccan Tradition, Pottery, watercolor resist, solid coloring, soft round brushes, sizing.
